‘American Idol’: Idol takes more than it gives

This is just… wrong.

Michael Johns has been eliminated. Erin was so unglued she couldn’t even muster the energy to write, except to say "There is no God."

ByemikeI blame the neckwear. Also, I hadn’t noticed how much Michael talked about "dreams" until I saw his exit video. But still, he should have outlasted Syesha and Kristy and probably Carly.

Damn. Erin and I will go lick our wounds and be back next week. : (

Also, Jordin Sparks performed her duet with Chris Brown and received several gold record plaques without having to endure the mind-numbing Clive Davis speech.

And the video messages from the presidential candidates finally resurfaced. Whew.
